This window at Clifford Michael stopped us in our tracks, even though the store was closed. "Reversible mink rainwear?" we said. We didn't know there was a market for reversible mink rainwear. But apparently that market exists, and it lives, unsurprisingly, on the Upper East Side.
Clifford Michael has a website, as we suppose one must these days, but they adamantly do not sell anything online or over the phone. They cater to an old-school style of shopper who wants to have their clothes and furs made to order from a brick-and-mortar store, preferably one in the neighborhood of Park Avenue and 60th. They also deal in mother-of-the-bride gowns and "well suited" custom suits for women and men.
